Another book about a fly has buzzed into my house! And it too stole my heart ❤️ He just has a dream and wait until you see how it all plays out. It might surprise you!! This book includes Venezuelan culture and is sooo easy to read, with lots of pictures, words in the margins, limited words and white space so it feels easy to read. I can’t wait to see what my Spanish 1s think when we do FVR next semester, God willing. Check out Soy yo, la mosca’s sister book: Mosca, ¡¡Mosca!!

Last month we heard from 2 of our authors that they had gotten together and each had written a book about a fly. The books are completely unique. In Margarita Pérez García's book, Mosca is a clumsy fly who lives in a dump in Venezuela and dreams of performing in an insect circus. Mosca dares to dream big, and shows us that good friends help make our dreams come true. Easy-to-read with vocab support in the margins and great illustrations to aid comprehension.
